TRURO, CANADA -  WARNING! WARNING!  If you`re an elderly gentlemen looking for love, beware of Melissa Ann Shephard, a.k.a. The Internet Black Widow.

This 80-year-old lady is a killer!

For nearly three years, Shepard`s Nova Scotia home was a prison cell.   She was convicted of spiking her new husband`s coffee with tranquilizers just two days after they said, “I do.”

Could she really be Canada’s most dangerous woman?  You be the judge. This was not her first time behind bars.

Since 1977, she's served time for a variety of crimes including fraud, forgery, theft, and the granddaddy of them all: manslaughter!

Shepard killed her second husband by drugging him and running him over with a car. Twice!!!

She got six years for that, but was out in two.

Her latest release comes with conditions. She’s banned from going online and changing her looks. She's got a curfew. And to top it off, she has to report any romantic relationships to police.

So to all you retired Romeos out there looking to score, don't let the orthopedic shoes fool ya!
